Recently, the news was that Star Wars: Trials of Tattoine is coming to HTC Vive, a VR headset ahead in the race due to its front-fitted camera. The trailer has also been released. And here comes news of Minecraft coming to Samsung Gear VR.
According to a report published by Engadget, “This new version is expected to be similar to the one from Oculus Rift, which we played recently and found quite impressive.” Other than announcing Minecraft for Samsung Gear VR at the Game Developers Conference held in San Francisco, Microsoft did not give out other details, like the release date or how much it will cost you.
According to a report published on Mashable, “In addition to VR versions, Microsoft’s also planning to release a holographic version of the game for its HoloLens augmented-reality headset.” Minecraft is already available on PC, PS4, Xbox One and the Nintendo Wii U. Speaking of mobile versions, Microsoft has also made the game available on iOS and Android phones.
